April 23rd is a local holiday, and celebrates the solemn procession of the patron saint of Cártama, Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, through the streets of the town. Highlights on this day are the taking out and bringing in of the Virgin in the Temple. This event is attended by pilgrims and devotees with offerings, often on foot, from the farthest reaches of our geography, not only the province but the rest of Spain and even abroad. The first Sunday of June the «taking up» takes place, the moment when the patroness returns to her hermitage, where she remains until the following year.
